guess i never put it up

but you fellow babble readers have already seen and read all about it long ago. here's a newish mates of state video for "my only offer." i didnt originally think of this song as a natural choice for their next video, but it's a good one. i guess they were stuck in those glass cases all day while filming and since she was nursing their second daughter they had to stop filming every couple of hours for her to pump milk and send it out to her sister who was watching the baby. i couldnt help but chuckle when she mentioned something about having to just deal with a bunch of indie film makers trying not to watch her pump... it seems like nursing moms just kind of have to roll with whatever situation comes up and i definitely remember some semi-awkward/creative nursing situations where i thought, "oh well, i'm trying to be discrete, but if someone sees something- so be it!"
anyway, enjoy:

I will never forget our first Mates of State concert together! I am soooooo glad we went, even though I didn't know who they were. I still have the matching shirt. Even though it kinda fits me weird now, I don't think I can get rid of it. Do you still have yours?

you know, thomas and i were looking at old pictures while we at my parents house this summer and there was a picture of you and me in our shirts from that night and he said, "i dont remember this shirt..." and i told him i most definitely wore it a lot when we were dating... but... i cant imagine what has happened to it since. it kinda makes me sad.

i think i remember it coming out looking a little funny after a couple of washes and thinking to myself that i was going to cut out the logo and use it on something else and just toss the rest, but i never did. so, sadly, i have no idea where it is and what happened to it.

thanks to your influence, mates of state is one of my favorites, if not favorite band(s). i'm trying not to sink to the level of obsession, but this video doesn't make it any easier. thanks for bettering my life. and you are the FARTHEST thing from dory mom.
